Eastwood Park - Heritage Restoration Project

Eastwood Park once part of the Hasland House Estate, was given to the local community in 1913 by Alderman Eastwood. The Park was opened on 2 July 1913 to much local acclaim.

Nearly 100 years later Chesterfield Borough Council has recently secured a grant of over £1milllion from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund for the restoration of Eastwood Park.

The project will renovate, improve and modernise existing facilities as well as introducing a number of new features to the park. Copies of the masterplan and conservation plan for the park can be found below.

Eastwood Park Conservation Plan

The Council has worked closely with the Friends of Eastwood Park and the local community, sports groups and other partners to put together the successful bid.

The £1.3 million grant will be spent on a number of improvements including the refurbishment of the village hall, the restoration of the fountain, the creation of a community garden, mini orchard, rose garden, wildlife area and tree planting.

There will be a new multi-use games area and play area for children and young people to enjoy plus improvements to the car park, footpath, drainage and war memorial.

There will be training and development opportunities for the local community in maintaining the park and promoting its use for events, sports clubs and activities.

Work on the restoration of the Park began in September this year, and will be finished for the Park’s centenary celebrations in July 2013. Work to the Village Hall will commence in January 2013 and will be finished by June 2013.
